People who have saved this event:


Space 4___ is a new arts space (in progress): for discussion, exploration and action/making based in London Fields, Hackney.

To culminate a month spent sharing space and practice, Space 4___’s current resident artists invite you to a conversation open to everyone: Starting from clothing.


An Introduction from Jane Frances Dunlop:

We have been thinking about clothing, about dress and fabric and textiles. About the processes of tangling and untangling, weaving and spinning our work and our work together. The conversation will begin with the questions that come out of this, out of how we have been thinking together about our separate practices. The intertwining of support, the moveable layers of friendship and artistic practice and work.

In Staying with the Trouble, Donna Haraway uses the string figures of cat’s cradle to explain the muddles and tangles of the making and thinking together. The thread shapes passed back and forth between hands, a game played so that the shape of things change as they are moved back and forth. For this conversation, we would like to talk about how textiles, threads and clothing enable us to talk about knowledge and knowledge-making in new ways, in old ways that might be useful in new times.

Space 4___ is a new arts space (in progress): for discussion, exploration and action/making run by artist Kathrin Bonnar

The space has a focus on looking at how (notions, experience and use of) clothing might be represented, explored or used in space - using a variety of approaches.

Considering clothing as something that can be used, in short, as a resource/support, throughout January discussions have thought about support, and the vary effects of a lack of, and /or disruption to things that support us.

Artists working in the space are Cherelle Sappleton (I'm not done projects), Mira Loew (Salon Flux), Katherine Fishman, Jane Frances Dunlop (Salon Flux) and Kathrin Bonnar (I'm not done projects & Space 4 ___).
